Exploring Birdsong


The highly acclaimed alt-pop/prog trio EXPLORING BIRDSONG have announced their long-awaited second EP,  titled Dancing in the Face of Danger, it will be released 24th March via Long Branch Records.

The news follows the band’s previously-released single ‘Ever The Optimist‘, co-written with Sir Paul McCartney, which you can view below.

Ever The Optimist (video shared below) has scrumptious pleats of doeskin synths, contextured pianocraft, and conscientious rhythms, Lynsey’s voice comes across as a honeyed-tender unction in this droolworthy composition of soothing lights and unobtrusive shades. Peaceable!

Exploring Birdsong will also be releasing Dancing in the Face of Danger with their 2019 EP The Thing With Feathers in vinyl format.

The Dancing in the Face of Danger  EP is a fascinating blend of pop sensibility, delicacy, exploration, and cunning heaviness. The extended play, which was recorded and processed at Northstone Studios in Bridgend, expands on the musical foundations laid down by their previous extendd playt. The new five-track EP evolves; synths and a live string section lend richness and gravitas to the piano-led core, and while the record isn’t conventionally conceptual, the band describes each tune as ‘having its own tale to tell’.

Rarely do new groups arrive as exciting, talented, or as unique as this Liverpool trio. For the most part, the band is unplaceable, straddling the lines between pop, progressive rock, and uncategorizable genre-blending beauty, yet aspects of Kate Bush, Sleep Token, and Agent Fresco come to mind.
